The Wide Brim: Early Poems and Ponderings of Marjory Stoneman Douglas
Edited - Jack E. Davis
Often described as the savior of the Everglades, Marjory Stoneman Douglas is best known for having been Florida's most passionate environmentalist, but she was first, foremost, and always a writer. The Wide Brim presents a collection of her best articles—many of which were preceded by a poem of her own composition—from her daily column in the Miami Herald, "The Galley," which ran from 1920-1923.
